play around with tires first then droop springs etc

If you are using the stock cvd's & go from 2 offset to 0 offset it changes the trackwidth of the car & depending on your setup the car's handling will change as well since it will be more narrow & vice versa

How can one tell if a track is a high bite or low bite track, especially when dealing with a Car park type track ?

Are you putting different offset tires and still retain the same width? Reason I asked is you can potentially go from legal width to potentially non-legal width by changing to 2mm offset wheels.

Once you change the offset you have to redo your track width. from 2deg to 0 offset my car was @ 195 compared to 200 all I can tell you is the car felt rear good. The one thing about the RRR is that you can be slightly off on your set up & the car will still handle great

Most of the parking lots are very rough & will shread your tires which most hobbies shops recommend 40 shore tires that are not to soft & will last a bit more longer than softer shores on a rough surface.
As for being able to determine high or low bite can depend on how much racing is done on that surface & if they spray the track as well.
Your best bet is asking a few guys that race there often & they should be able to help you out on tire shore & the typical wear as well.
